I don't believe so. It has a store-made used game cover, and the disc doesn't suggest it's special. Am I missing a lot?

Not really. GOTY edition has some cool extras like the Undead Nightmare storyline and a few new weapons, but it's still a great game without it.

I am playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I mainly use conjure spell .I have reduced my spending of magicka to zero for the conjuration through enchanting.  I can conjure demora lord and storm atronach (Storm atronach is very usful for killing the dragons). I can conjure two creatures to help me at a time. The game is not difficult at this stage.


Conjuration + Enchanting+speechcraft = Invincible

Is there any player of Skyrim succesfully reviving a merchant who can keep the function of trading?

How about Enchanting,Alchemy,Smithing?

Among Enchanting,Alchemy,Smithing, we should good at at least one of them. Otherwise, it is difficult to earn a large amount of money within a short period of time.

I did the same thing, but with leather bracers (it's a little faster because the materials are easier to obtain). Remember to buy every petty soul gem you come across and put some lame enchantment on the item. That gets your Enchanting up to 100 in about the same time.

Of course the king of money making (at least for me) lies in alchemy.

I am a magician.Enchanting is very important to a magician. Magician can reduce the magicka cost to 0 through enchanting.

Thus, Most of my money lies on enchanting, just buy weapons and Petty or lesser Soul Gem from the shop.Then, enchanting them with banish and absorb health.Finally, sell them to Lucan Valerius or other merchants ( If we make investment on the bussiness of Lucan Valerius, we can sell the products which are value for $10000 gold to him at a time. )

I seldom do smithing and alchemy.

I never lack of mana after I learn how to reduce the cost of mana to 0 by enchanting. If you want to act as the mana in the future.,You should learn it and so lack of mana will not annoy you .

I think the biggest problem of skyrim is that most NPC will not be reflesed after they are killed by the player, dragons,monsters, etc.IF too many NPC is died, many missions will not be able to accomplished. If the merchants was died, we cannot purchase the products.

It would be better if Skyrim can reflesh the NPC after one is died, like SIM.

True. In the predecessor of Skyrim I depopulated an entire city (except for the immortal NPCs). It made many quests unplayable.

Even I do not kill the merchants and the NPC who would give us the missions, the dragons or other monsters would still do so!!  Sad! Sad Undecided

And they will not be refleshed after they are died   Angry

Europa Universalis: The Musical

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3H67FQX5ZLE

“This is something the entire development studio has wanted to do for years, and now we are proud to say that our empire-building series Europa Universalis is coming alive in the way it was truly meant to be,” said Johan Andersson, Studio Manager at Paradox Development Studio.

“When history is your backdrop, it evokes strong feelings and a lot of drama. When internationally renowned music producer Matthias Olsson reached out and described his vision for a musical, I truly felt that this was what the series had been missing. Europa Universalis has tension, alliances, betrayals, and a dream of conquering the world that is the perfect setting for a musical.”

Did you see this tweet?

Switching back and forth now between CKII and Mount&Blade (The Last Days mod, specifically - fantastic mod for Tolkien fans, even if it is from the older version of M&B). I guess it's fair to say I'm on a bit of a Paradox binge at the moment. Tongue

Other than the occassional game of Texas Hold'Em on facebook, nothing really, surprisingly. I'm probably going to sell my Xbox 360 very soon--while I could still get something out of it. It is one of the green Halo 3 special models that came out for a limited time back in 2007 with Halo 3's release. I imagine I could fetch in a bit more due to that fact if I find some hardcore Halo fan. And, it has only had the RROD once before, and I got it fixed immediately.

Victoria II. Pursuing the Megali Idea as Greece.

oh hey, me too... the new crisis mechanic is very helpful... sadly Russia keeps allying with the Ottomans making me want to destroy the computer. I just edited the files so they start at -75 relations with ottomans. they tend to follow more historical paths now. Don't forget to form byzantium after you take the megali idea... and retake constantinople! Wink

Anyway, I wonder if many play Europa Universalis III on this forum. But I post on paradox forums quite a lot. Anyway, I made a rage comicfor a Europa Universalis III game I played and seeing is is mostly about religion I will post it here as well and hope it is enjoyable...
